Midi – notein problem, help please.
I’m using three midi tracks, each sending one note at a time, each midi track on different channels.
inside max I need to display the three notes from the 3 tracks, as 3 numbers – using notein 1, notein 2 & notein 3 into 3 number inspectors.
When i close and restart ableton it stops working and the number inspectors shows the same numbers (from one midi track only), and in order to get it back on track, i have to make three new notein objects and it works again…until I restart.
How do i get it to work without having to make three new notein objects every time i launch my project ?
without seeing the patch it’s hard to check for the problem. To me it seems that you forget to tell the [notein] from which device to take the info. You can double-click on it to set it or let it be done by Max, see patch below. It’s a basic thing so possibly you already did this. If so than i guess people would like to see the patch to check it.

Hope this will help. Good luck!!
I did the routing inside ableton and the patch look like this:

apparently it’s not able to seperate the channels if i restart :)
M4L midi effect devices are not able to separate the channels.
For being able to separate midi input channels the M4L device type must be an *instrument*, ie. built from a Max instrument template. In this case the device can be used like a "multitimbral" instrument (explained in the Live manual).
It allready is a Max "instrument"… still can’t manage to get it to work though…
Then it should definitely work.
Make sure that Midi From of the instrument’s track is set to ‘No Input’.
It does work when i make the notein objects. As soon as i close ableton and open the project again… the notein objects loses track of the channels and all just display channel 2, though they’re set to notein 1, notein 2 and notein 3
Can’t get john’s patch to work… I somehow need to tell the notein objects more specificaly where to get the note info from.
Well, John’s patch doesn’t work as it refers to external midi ports.
It seems the selection must be done at run time. Try this.

My mistake, sorry for that. Great that you got other people to help you out!!
Thanks a lot broc and john !! Works like a charm now !! the gate did the trick :)
Glad to hear. So I’ve learned something too..
Just wanted to add that [gate] may not be the best solution here due to possible timing problems. So I think using [route] would be better.
